Wondrous Weird Thrift Store Art


Thrift stores offer a wide range of art to adorn your walls at low, low prices… if you can stomach pretty bad art! Sometimes it’s paint-by-numbers art and sometimes it’s framed puzzles but with a little imagination and a set of brushes and paints, someone like David Irvine can create wondrous, weird, almost psychotic worlds of wackiness that take these $1 objects d’ art into full blown masterpieces. Here’s just part of his wacky collection!

Impressed? Depressed? Well, whatever you are, you can revel in David’s madness by purchasing an original piece or just a print. You ban also see more examples on his Facebook fan page, The Gnarled Branch.
